US theme park company Six Flags is said to be planning to bring the world's largest roller coaster to its Dubai theme park. 

The world's tallest roller coaster is reportedly operated by Six Flags in New Jersey, and the world's fastest roller coaster is situated in Abu Dhabi's Ferrari World. 

In a report by the Wall Street Journal, cited by Arabian Business, John Odum, senior vice president of international park operations at Six Flags, said there will be "bigger" and "better" rides in the new park. 

"There will be rides that are bigger, better, faster, broader than any rides in the world," Odum reportedly said.  

Construction work on the $707m (AED2.6bn) Dubai theme park commenced this July

The development is scheduled to open in 2019, local daily The National has previously reported.
